The Stig is Out of the Bag

Or out on the road as the case may be. I guess the secret's out. My Utata project is going to be an adaptation of...drum roll, please...Top Gear. Watch their space for more details and keep your fingers crossed (please!) that I make the deadline. There's nothing quite like starting mere hours before the project is due, right? (Yes, yes, I know, typical Carol. If it weren't for the last minute, how would anything get done?)

Oh, and while I'm on the subject of complaining, since this is my blog and I feel uniquely qualified to rant a bit, would somebody out in Internet land please, for the love of God, money, and great American muscle cars built before 1973, tell me how he can breathe in that helmet? Gosh, it's hot in that thing, and no oxygen, let me tell you. Oye. Stiggy, no wonder you drive so fast-you're a tough one for sure.

Then again, maybe his species doesn't need any oxygen?

Until next BIG PROJECT in the making...

Fingers and toes crossed that you meet your deadline!

The mouthpiece looks like there is something there to give him air. Even if it is just extra space for extra air.

I opted to blow the the project this year. I'm holding out for one that's photography only and no writing.

Plus just getting settled back into the house and all, I think I might have been a little preoccupied otherwise... ;-)

"blow the the" -> "blow off the".

One of the reasons why I chose not to bother this year ;-)

Thanks, Peruby! I'm happy to report I did make the deadline. Phew!

And, yes, those vents sort of give him air but not much. In my case, the helmet pretty much just filled up with steam, since it was so hot. Oye.

CraftyGuy, glad to hear you are back in the house. That's great news. You can always do a project later, but having a home is way more important.
